Slip and Fall Accidents

Premises Liability Attorney

People who have never seen catastrophic and fatal outcomes of slip and fall injuries are prone to joke about the subject because they have no idea how serious slip and fall accidents can be. Slip and fall can result brain injuries, and even lead to deadly infections, among the many possible outcomes. Attorney Fred J. Fleming understands the seriousness of your injuries and why you need full compensation. Please do not hesitate to call and find out how we can help you.

Infections and Other Unexpected Outcomes

The conditions which make a slip and fall accident possible often involve a general lack of cleanliness and care. For instance, slip and fall can occur due to a slippery overgrowth of mold and bacteria. Victims who are injured in a fall in these conditions can suffer life-threatening or fatal infections far worse than the initial injury from the impact of the fall.

In other situations, improperly stored chemicals may be involved, leading to chemical burns and other forms of toxic exposure, where again, the fall itself is the least of your problems.

Premises Liability

Premises liability is the theory of law which says that the owner of a property or business, or whoever is in control of that property, has a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for those who enter, such as employees, customers, guests, visitors, and, in certain circumstances, even trespassers.

Providing a reasonably safe environment means correcting and known or foreseeable dangers, including those which can lead to slip and fall accidents.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents

Examples of conditions which can lead to actionable clip and fall accidents include:

  • Spills which re not cleaned up in a timely fashion

  • Messes and debris
  • Poor lighting
  • Lack of or damaged handrails
